F1 Fanatic - World Endurance Championship

So Audi are (likely) to be grey and white with splash of red, Porsche are grey and white with a splash of red and Toyota are mainly white with a splash of red and blue. It’s a good thing the racing in WEC is good…
Is this really the final livery, rather than some awful launch gimmick?
Meanwhile here’s a new video, which is rather better than the last one:
Official shots of the new Porsche 919 Hybrid are still exciting even if the race livery is a bit drab!
Do you think they were planning a Martini livery before Williams grabbed them?
From the design images they’ve released so far, Rebellion could be going back to a white car as well. I guess white shows up the dirt and battle scars better after a 24-hour race – that’s why all the white cars are in LMP1 and not F1. There’s still time though, c’mon Williams.
It reminds me of this (which is not a good thing)
I can’t help thinking it’s extremely ugly.
Not as ugly as Caterham’s CT05 though.
I think the new Audi and Porsche look bloody brilliant, but that Porsche’s livery is so boring. I guess the main thing these liveries need is a title sponsor, in Porsche’s case something like Rothmans or Martini. It’s really weird that they don’t go for a more eye-catching livery, as they claim it is their vision for the sports car of the future
For the earlier part of this conversation: here is a mention in the statement about the engine being a V4.
The drive system of the new LMP1 race car is based on a four cylinder petrol engine that is as compact as it is lightweight. It performs load-bearing functions within the chassis based on its V-angle construction, which also offers thermodynamic advantages.
Ah, although it still doesn’t say V4 om there, just a 4 cylinder!
Could be a straight four?
Could be a flat four too, especially as the Flat engine is the weapon of choice for Porsche’s sports cars…
This video really nicely shows how open the ducting under the nose through to the sides is on the Porsche. It surprising how much daylight you can see.
